We visited Southern Comforts Restaurant for dinner this evening on our last night in town.
Sean was our server and he was friendly and attentive. Our glass was never empty! Being from PA my husband and I recognized his accent and thought he was either from Philly or NJ. He said he was actually from NJ and had moved here with a friend. This was his first serving job...he’s going to be just fine!
Anyway, back to the food. My husband had the clam chowder and I tried it as well. It had lots of seafood and a great flavor. Not too thick and not too thin, it had a nice consistency.
I had the Crab Stuffed Shrimp
(9 small) w/Green beans and Gorgonzola mashed potatoes. This was absolutely delicious! Everything was fresh and had a nice flavor!
My husband had the Shrimp and Grits and liked it as well. He did say that his grits were not very warm on the bottom of the bowl, so they could have been heated more.
Overall, this place is a gem! Loved the atmosphere, food and service was great too! My only regret is not trying a dessert...
Maybe next time!

Food is fresh and looks and tastes great! I had the grouper and my wife had the crab cakes. Sides of corn fritters casserole and zucchini were excellent. Side salad was one of the freshest I've had at a restaurant. Waitress seemed a little frazzled, but regardless she did a good job.

Thank you we appreciate your positive feedback. Our staff strives to be the best. We use only fresh products in our kitchen and that makes a big difference. Your server that day is new but I think she will be great when she settles into it a little. Thanks again

Thank you,
I will let the staff know. I assume you dined with us on Monday or Tuesday so I will let the server that worked that day that you were happy with her service. Hope to see you again real soon.

From the walking in the door and being greeted by the chef, to the specials that they offer, you feel right at home with the people that work there.

If you are traveling through Pawleys Island stop here!

Just enjoyed the Tuesday half-price burgers. Such a great deal, feel free to add the extra toppings for extra enjoyment. Deals every day of the week (but closed Wednesday). Greg (owner) keeps upping the game. We appreciate his efforts and expertise. PS: also bought a fresh loaf of 9-grain bread and it is killer! [good job Chris] PPS: great service from Nicole2.
